Brian, the controls between the seats are for the heater. Porsche replaced the manual levers with the electrically activated ones you see in your car. My '79 930 has the electrical controls. Also, you will see a temperature probe at the top of the windshield right behind the rear-view mirror. This probe is tied into the heater controls between the seat, so don't remove the probe.

It's fun to see you discover all the interesting things in your car. My 930 is up on my rack undergoing a complete engine rebuild right now, so THIS is what you have to look forward to:
1. I've replaced ALL of the A/C components with an upgrade kit from RetroAir here in Dallas. The hoses are a HUGE PAIN to replace.
2. I also replaced my hard oil lines to the front cooler with Elephant Racing finned oil lines. Replaced the oil thermostat also. All new oil lines are going in as well.
3. Turbo (K27-7200) has been rebuilt and ceramic coated. Wastegate has been rebuilt.
4. All engine tin has been powdercoated (again).
5. Oil tank has been flushed and stripped to bare metal in preparation to be powdercoated. Front 28-tube cooler has been flushed and cleaned (bright, gleaming brass in the right front fender!) and reinstalled.
6. I just got my case back from Steve Weiner and am in the process of reassembling the engine right now (right side cam seized after the oil fitting on the cam tower became clogged. UGH!!).
7. Rebuilt all four brake calipers (thanks to Steve Weiner for this), ALL new rotors and hardware (floating rotors on the 78-79 930's are CRAZY expensive) plus new e-brakes. All new brake lines installed also.

You're going to find that this car has an even HIGHER slippery slope when it comes to draining your bank account. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!

P.S. - I need to call you about a WUR. My buddy Sam Moultrie just got one of your units and is having it installed on his monster 934 replica.
